Personal profile

Research Interests

I am interested in processes underlying visual cognition. To study these processes I mainly employ methods of experimental psychology and psychophysics. These behavioural techniques are supplemented by simulations based on computational models or machine learning algorithms. My early research addressed issues of eye movement control and visual stability during saccadic eye movements. Subsequently, I have investigated questions relating to object recognition, visual categorisation, and object learning by vision and touch. Over the last decade the development of object recognition skills in children has become a major focus of my work.
